Now let's say you are unable to find a local distributor, or they no longer have stocks due discontinuation of production at factory. What's next?
You can try to find a seat cover manufactured by a third party.
Before you start shopping, you'll need the following information:
- length of seat cover
- width of seat cover
- distance between the seat cover hinges (measured centre to centre)
- shape of the seat cover
Here's a great tip!
Step 1: pull out a page of an old newspaper (or any paper bigger than the seat cover)…
Step 2: now nice and easy….with the seat and cover both flipped down, trace the shape of the seat as well as you can
Step 3: with the tracing done, measure the extreme length and width of your seat cover (red lines). Note it down on the paper.
Step 4: finally, don’t forget to take a measurement of the distance between the hinges of the cover
Bring that paper and the measurements with you on your shopping trip aaaaaaand you’re all set!
